How To Fabric Covered Box

  1. 1. How to: <ul><li>fabric covered box </li></ul><ul><li>kootoyoo…click & stitch </li></ul>
  2. 2. <ul><li>This is hardly even a “how to”. It’s just a super simple, super speedy bit of fun. </li></ul><ul><li>You’lll need an old kitchen wrap box & cylinder, fabric, nail, embroidery floss, spray adhesive & a hammer </li></ul>
  3. 3. Step 2: <ul><li>Pull apart your box. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Step 3: <ul><li>Using a small nail & your hammer make a series of evenly spaced holes down the long sides of your box. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Step 4: <ul><li>Mine are about 1.5cm apart. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Step 5: <ul><li>To make the holes in the ends of the box you just need to refold the box & secure with a bit of tape while you make the holes. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Step 6: <ul><li>I just used a piece of scrap wood that fit inside the box to hammer my nails into. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Step 7: <ul><li>It’s a good idea to have the holes closer together on the ends as these are actually going to hold the box together. </li></ul>
  9. 9. Step 8: <ul><li>Undo all the pieces of tape & lay your box flat. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Step 9: <ul><li>Position your box onto your fabric & rough cut to size. Allow a couple of centimetres extra on each of the long sides. </li></ul><ul><li>If you’re using a light coloured fabric you will need to adhere your fabric to the natural side of the box so that you don’t see the branding through the fabric. </li></ul>
  11. 11. Step 9: <ul><li>Spray both your box & your fabric with spray adhesive. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Step 11: <ul><li>Fold your excess fabric over the long sides as pictured. </li></ul><ul><li>Now cut away the rest of the fabric as shown. </li></ul><ul><li>Your need to allow a bit of excess fabric on the ends so that you don’t have raw edges visible. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Step 12: <ul><li>Refold your box & secure with bulldog clips or pegs. </li></ul>
  14. 14. Step 13: <ul><li>Begin stitching through both layers of fabric & your nail holes…lacing card style. </li></ul>
  15. 15. Step 14: <ul><li>I used a running stitch for the long sides (which aren’t structural). </li></ul>
  16. 16. Step 15: <ul><li>… and back stitch for the ends of the box. These are actually holding the box together (you could use a little bit of glue too if you’re worried about it). </li></ul>
  17. 17. Finished! <ul><li>Finally you could make some twisted cord: </li></ul><ul><li>http://kootoyoo.blogspot.com/2008/09/how-to-make-twisted-cord.html </li></ul><ul><li>or just attach some ribbon to the top of the box. I’ve wound a little spool with the same red floss but a lovely vintage button will work just as well as a closure. </li></ul>©kootoyoo 2009 http:// kootoyoo.blogspot.com
